Are you being shortchanged on your overtime pay? We will fight for you.
Most employers are happy to comply with overtime wage laws, because the extra pay helps keep workers motivated and happy during overly long shifts and workweeks. However, overtime pay can be costly and some employers may be tempted to cut their spending in this area by illegally withholding the overtime pay their workers deserve.
If you suspect your employer is shortchanging you on your overtime pay, you need to involve an attorney. The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker makes an excellent choice.

Know Your Rights
All California workers--except those in “exempt” positions--are entitled to two kinds of overtime pay. You can receive time and a half when you work more than 40 hours in one week, as well as when you work more than 8 hours in one day. You can receive double pay after working 12 hours in one day.
Unfortunately, employers sometimes use various underhanded tactics to illegally reduce or deny workers’ overtime pay. Examples include:
- Forcing employees to work off the clock
- Averaging work hours over two weeks
- Claiming overtime was unauthorized
- Failing to pay workers for meetings, training, take-home work, or short breaks in an attempt to keep their hours down
- Paying workers in comp time rather than overtime wages
- Misclassifying employees as exempt--such as by giving an employee a management title with no management duties
If you have noticed any of these tactics being used at your workplace, chances are you have grounds for legal action against your employer. We encourage you to contact us immediately.
Now You May Wonder…
…Will Filing an Overtime Claim Put My Job in Jeopardy?
All too often, employees keep silent about overtime pay violations because they are afraid they will lose their jobs if they speak up.
Don’t let this fear rob you of your hard-earned pay! Remember, it is actually illegal for your employer to take any adverse job action against you based on your decision to initiate an overtime pay dispute. If they demote you, fire you, cut your hours, or seek to punish you in any other way, this constitutes retaliation and we can help you take additional legal action against them.
